What rhymes with "agony"?

In a typically treacherous act, my back has declared a fatwa on the rest of my body and has gone out.

Thus, instead of scouring the world for obscure Bulgarian love poetry, I am hobbling around the house going "ow, ow, ow".

Normal Poetry Slamming will resume next week.


Ow, ow, ow.

Ow,ow,ow. What the "L"?

Lewd Bob said...

Nice work Ramon and Perseus. That's a collaboration up there with Morrissey and Marr.

Or perhaps Abbott and Costello.

Has anyone seen, or found, the Black Pepper skit from Hale and Pace? I have looked all over Youtube and can't find it!!

This question seems appropriate due to the lack of real effort on behalf of the committee in charge of poetry slam Friday. At least Black Pepper is funny!

Lewd Bob said...

So which is the best comedy duo?

Hale and Pace
Abbott and Costello
Smith and Jones
Laurel and Hardy
Morcambe and Wise
The Two Ronnies
Cheech and Chong
Ramon and Perseus
Simon and Garfunkel

Perseus said...

Smith and Jones always made me laugh.

Perseus said...

But this is still my funniest sketch ever.

wari lasi said...

As usual Perseus I agree.

In 2nd place comes the Comedy Company's Kung Fu sketch.

"Yes, Donkey Dick"?

"It's Grasshopper master"

My connection is too slow to go hunting for it on You Tube.

Dear Ramon,

We all hope your back gets better soon

Lewd Bob said...

That was Fast Forward, Wari, I do believe.

Melba said...

Put Martin and Lewis on the list. Mel Smith, even just his face makes me laugh. I wonder how the Not the Nine O'Clock News sketches would hold up, and Kenny Everett.

And can I say how sorry I am to hear Ramon about your back. Unlike the other curs, who completely ignored or mocked, I offer you my heartfelt best wishes and sympathy.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Thank you Melba.

And may I just say the whole "Romeow & Juliowl" schtick Perseus and I had going was an absolute side-splitter.

That was Fast Forward, Wari, I do believe.

Yep. Peter Moon and Steve Vizard. Season two. The season I can't find on DVD.

I like the stuff Sammo Hung, Yuen Biao, and Jackie Chan did together at Golden Harvest in the 80s. Though, I guess they're more of a trio than a duo.

Witchie, wasn't the black pepper sketch a series of short sketches or a running gag or whatever you call it? I did find this for you.

Melba said...

Obviously squib is not a cur. We were commenting at the same time is all.

wari lasi said...

Thanks Bob and Alex. It was indeed Fast Forward.

I stand corrected (once again).

It was piss funny though. The two of them could hardly get through it.

wari lasi said...

And Ramon, having broken my back in 1992 (compression fracture T12 and L1) I am entirely sympathetic to your plight.

Back pain is in its own league.

WitchOne said...

Alex, you're gorgeous!! Thank-you!!!!!!

While we are comparing back stories, I herniated a disc in my spine when 3 months pregnant, that was it for me, morphine and pethidine were my pain killers for the rest of the pregnancy.

On the up side, I have a very calm child.

Back pain sucks the big one and there is nothing else like it.

You have my sympathies.

Melba said...


It's the best I could come up with.

It sort of rhymes.

Sounds similar?

Sounds not dissimilar?

Since I'm doing requests, this is for you Wari.

In things unrelated, does anyone think that Leigh Sales new hair cut makes her head look too triangular? And do ABC news readers wear their own clothes or are they dressed by a wardrobe department? That thing she was wearing tonight looked like it was fashioned from a black plastic garbage bag.

wari lasi said...

Thanks Alex.

What Witchie said. In a platonic heterosexual way, of course.

Not that there's anything wrong with man love of course, it just isn't my bag.
